Description

Spironolactone is a medication often used as a diuretic or for treatment of heart failure. Spironolactone helps the body to retain the potassium that is sometimes lost in large amounts when using other diuretics. Spironolactone is used to treat congestive heart failure, edema, high blood pressure (hypertension), potassium deficiency, and hyperaldosteronism. Spironolactone works by increasing the levels of water excretion by the kidneys.

Key Features

  • Often effective when other diuretic treatments don't work
  • Does not cause potassium loss
  • Removes a surplus of fluid from the body's bloodstream or tissues
  • Used to treat advanced heart failure
  • For use in Dogs, Cats and Horses

Spironolactone/HCTZ tablets contain the active ingredients spironolactone and hydrochlorothiazide. Spironolactone/HCTZ is prescribed for the treatment of congestive heart failure and ascites (fluid in the abdomen). This combination is often used when the pet does not respond to other diuretics.

How It Works

Spironolactone and hydrochlorothiazide are prescription diuretics (water pills). Diuretics are agents which increase the excretion of water in the urine, ridding the body of excess fluid.

Directions

  • Give Spironolactone with food to lessen stomach upset. Keep plenty of water available for your pet.
  • Spironolactone is a water pill (potassium-sparing diuretic) available by prescription that is used to treat edema, high blood pressure, potassium deficiency, and hyperaldosteronism.
  • Spironolactone is used to reduce the amount of fluid in the body without also causing loss of potassium.

It should be used cautiously in animals with hepatic (liver) disease, but is often used to treat ascites (accumulation of fluid in the peritoneal cavity, which causes abdominal swelling).
